About the teacher’s accommodation

My home is on a residential street in Haywards Heath. There are lovely views of the South Downs and surrounding countryside. Within walking distance are the town centre with its shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the train station and the lovely village of Lindfield. Your room has a 4 foot wide bed, desk, wardrobe, drawers and garden views.

About the local area

You can go on a day trip to London to see all the attractions the city has to offer, or go on shorter trips to Brighton, to walk along the seafront or explore the Pier, the Lanes and the many cafes and restaurants. Lewes is also within easy reach. The coastline offers wonderful walks on top of the cliffs for spectacular scenery at Seven Sisters Country Park. In addition, the countryside offers award-winning traditional English villages such as Lindfield and Cuckfield, as well as Wakehurst Place and Sheffield parks. There is plenty to do even on a small budget.
